Elegant textiles and a traditionally vegetable tanned leather trim characterise the design of this robust laptop backpack. All external zip fasteners are watertight and skilfully crafted. In order that the backpack can be carried comfortably, the back panel and the easily adjustable shoulder straps are elaborately upholstered. There is room in the inside for a 17” laptop and a 10“ tablet. In addition to the two side and front exterior pockets with organising panel, there are many inside compartments.

The Architecture Urban Rath gains merit by its high degree of functionality and surprises with many well-considered, practical details.
